Tailgatin' and Touchdowns! Part I

GO GATORS! We love "us" some football here in the South! I'm all about a good Gator game and the tailgatin' beforehand! It has been a while since I last posted about a Gator game and our shenanigans, so I'm catching you up on a game that was a few weeks ago. Part II will be the Florida-Georgia post!

For the Florida-Arkansas game, which turned out to be a a nail-biter, we started out at our customary game-day post, with our hosts Wiley and Doris H. (who are the epitome of Southern Hospitality).

There's always good eatin', loud music, and lots of catching up to do at the tailgate parties!

Nolan and Mimi (Cecil's Mom)
Go Gators!
Up to something, I'm just not sure what....

For this particular game, our boys joined us, as well as our good friends, Travis and Cori W. (Cecil's daddy and Carter joined us later in the day after a nice, long nap)!

Travis and Cori

Cecil and Travis...need I say more?

Cori and I at the tailgate!

A few more pictures from the tailgate scene......

Edward (Cecil's brother) and Wiley, our host

Doris (the hostess) and friend, Suzanne, who is the wife of my children's dentist!

After eating and being merry for a bit, we headed over to The Swamp (where only Gators get out alive) and saw one of my favorite men on me what you want to...I'm shameless when it comes to Tim Tebow!




If you're a Gator fan, you know how the game turned out, but WHEW! We were sweating bullets the entire 4th quarter!!! I mean, seriously! This was HOMECOMING! We aren't supposed to lose to Arkansas!!! REALLY?!?!? But, Timmy and the GATORS pulled it off and we were VICTORIOUS, late in the 4th quarter! My heart can NOT take anohter game like that!

The FINAL score!

This is me and Cecil at the end of the game, when the Gators had pulled off another victory!

And me, Cecil, and Bill (who sits behind us at the game and whom we have become good friends with)--after the game and all the excitement!

Stay tuned for Part II--the Florida-Georgia tailgate and game!!

Until next time....
